Rumours have been ciculating for a while regarding Liverpool’s interest in Red Bull’s Naby Keita. Akin to Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante, the powerful box to box midfielder has hit the Bundesliga by storm which led to him being in the Team of the Season as he helped Red Bull reach 2nd in the league. Klopp’s supposedly put him at the top of the transfer list but will Liverpool have to smash their transfer record to get the player?

The deal could well and truly happen now that Liverpool seem to be intent on taking advantage of the potential Champion’s League place by spending a rumoured £200m during the Summer transfer window. Money being spent wisely is the focal point for Klopp but he spent a large chunk of money on both Wijnaldum and Mane…they turned out to be very successful. I can see the deal happening and a £45m+ deal being struck for the midfielder.
